Many of my students use AAC devices in order to communicate and require a lot of practice to extend their sentence length and add attributes to their vocabulary. Today we played a game that required students to practice using their attributes in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. This game would work well with a small group or while working 1:1 with an AAC user.
I created the game in Boardmaker Studio. If you have access to Boardmaker, you can download the interactive project here.
Students must describe which button they would like pushed using at least two attributes. Each button is different from the others, but alike enough to another that students must take care to use at least two attributes. Each button is linked to a Youtube video that is easily customizable to your students by editing the action.
I printed the array out for students to use while creating their sentences and also had students cross out each button as we pressed it to avoid repeats.
If you don’t have access to Boardmaker, you could print out the array and manually open Youtube for the video of your choice. AAC game attributes
